In brief: Varies
An engorged breast is usually referring to a breast the has become filled with milk as a result of breastfeeding.
When milk production is underway - the breast will become engorged between feedings. An engorged breast will be fuller and firmer, and the skin can be stretched and tense, the nipple can become frim and flattened over the distended breast. Nursing or pumping usually gives relief.
